Soul Blends | “Out Of My ooo” by Jessica Wilde

Jessica Wilde blends chic soul with savvy street defiance on new single “Out Of My ooo”

out of my ooo by jessica wildeBrixton raised singer Jessica Wilde is ready to sweep you off your feet with a sassy instantly lovable new single “Out Of My ooo”.

The single follows her debut ‘Cry For Me’ which was premiered as BBC Radio 1xtra’s ‘Record Of The Week’ and is bursting with classic soul style blended with street-savvy defiance. This creative fusion reflects her multicultural upbringing; brought up on her St Helenian mother’s obsession with jazz and soul, Jessica doused it with hip hop leanings and set it a light.

With its brass, bouncy bass and finger-clicking strut tempo it’s impossible not to get hooked on “Out Of My ooo” and its attitude infused swing. It’s the type of top songwriting that has seen Jessica sign a publishing deal with Sony ATV and work with luminaries such as Ghetts and Tough Love. Another of her self-penned tracks ‘Strangers Love’ was recently released by renowned Korean K-pop label SM Entertainment and her recent co-write with Rudimental, ‘More Than Anything’ featured vocals from Emile Sande and made their album.

Jessica WildeThe session at Ne-Yo’s Hollywood studio, with producer Kizzo (Ne-Yo, Afrojack) was a defining moment for Jessica – not only because she survived a bizarre, high speed LA crash moments before the recording began, but because her own project was borne and the basis of her upcoming singles took form. Three months in LA, and several purposefully missed flights later, Jessica Wilde returned to London, ready to showcase herself and her music to the world.

With its festive glow and stylish addictive refrain ‘Out Of My ooo’ is set to put Jessica Wilde firmly on the map this winter as an unmissable diverse artist who embraces the best of classic songwriting and instills it with bite.

‘Tis the Season of Love | “Lover Lover” by Rachel Kerr

Multi-Award Winning Recording Artist Rachel Kerr Releases Single “Lover Lover” From Upcoming Debut Album

 

It’s taken me a while but I have used all of my unique experiences, my Caribbean roots, my love for live instrumentation, my appreciation of retro soul and my inspirational lyrics and blended it to create my unique sound. A sound I couldn’t be any more proud of. A sound that is unapologetically me. – Rachel Kerr

Lover Lover by Rachel Kerr - BRASH! Magazine BlogRecently, Rachel Kerr released her new single “Lover Lover” from her upcoming debut album (set to be released in spring 2020).

Her last single “Alive” garnered 100,000s of streams from Spotify and Apple Music and even caught the attention of Sam Smith who posted the song to his social media. “Alive” also received a GRAMMY Award consideration in 2018.

“Lover Lover” is Rachel’s follow up single. The song’s vibrant uptempo instrumentation with live brass meets contemporary Caribbean inspired drums- an ode to her Caribbean heritage. “Lover Lover” like all of Rachel’s songs are self-penned, celebrating the beauty of love free from drama, carnality, and stress – ultimately a superior love that gives peace. In 2018 Rachel Kerr headlined her sold-out show at The O2 Islington with her 9-piece band. Her two hour set of original material showed fans what to expect for her upcoming debut album.

After spending 2015-2017 touring the US, Africa and Europe opening for the likes of Lauryn Hill and Brandy, few singers can also boast personal invitations to sing for the Former US President and UK Prime Minister, but Rachel Kerr is one. After the success of her debut and sophomore EPs Back to Music and Getting Started, Rachel has spent subsequent years honing in her sound. A sound set to establish her as a leading force in music.

With influences in soul, r&b, gospel and reggae “Lover Lover” showcases the singer’s sonic fluidity and ability to transcend the limitations of a boxed, singular musical genre.

Little Name, Larger Than Life | “Small” Music Video by Fabian Secon

Fabian Secon Teams Up with XXXTentacion Director Tristan Zammit for New Video Animation, “Small”

Small Music Video by Fabian Secon - BRASH! Magazine Blog

Fresh from his successful debut headline show at Camden Assembly on 2nd September, Fabian Secon has teamed up with world-renowned director/animator Tristan Zammit for new video “Small”. Zammit is known for his animations for the likes of XXXTENTACION, Tory Lanez, and Lil Yachty to name a few.

The video tells the story of a young Fabian feeling small in a big city but eventually standing tall and triumphant over everyone and everything in his way. “Small” is taken from Fabian’s latest EP I See Things Others Can’t, which has helped push his global streams past 25 million—a huge milestone for the independent artist who writes and produces all of his own music.

Watch Video for “Small”

Having recently collaborated on J Spades’ MMMP 4 project, Fabian is currently working with artists such as Santino Le Saint and Ali3nhead, as well as writing for other artists with Jacob Manson (Rudimental, Ed Sheeran, Craig David), Redmojo (Madonna, Anitta, Pitbull), Will Simms (Aloe Blacc, Sean Kingston, WSTRN) and Daniel Mirza (Mr Eazi) among others. He’ll return to the stage later in the year with IAMNEXT.

I See Things Others Can’t follows previous projects Until We Meet Again alongside 5ive Beatz (2017) and Don’t Disturb (2016) and sees Fabian experimenting more with his sound.

“Each song has its own personality and expression, ranging from uplifting emotions to depressing places and rebellion”, says Fabian. “The EP’s title and concept revolve around the idea that sometimes I’m in my own world and only I can feel and visualize certain things around me. I always like to be one step ahead creatively and sonically too.”

“For this project, I wanted to push my own boundaries. I created a more progressive sound with tracks like ‘Small’, which is very melodic and pop-R&B driven, while keeping a more familiar dark and eerie sound on others, such as ‘One More Day’ [co-produced by Jacob Manson]. I wanted to show growth and capabilities of what else I can do but also pay homage to what has been successful for me previously.”

The Great Escape | “London Grey” by Axel Mansoor

Emmy-nominated Artist, Axel Mansoor Releases Melancholy Electro Pop Single, “LondonGrey”

London Grey by Axel Mansoor

“London Grey” takes a polar opposite style, narrating the feeling of wanting to run back home and escape to somewhere where you don’t have to try so hard to be someone or something. Emitting a softer, darker mood with mellow guitars and yearning lyricism, “London Grey” sets a melancholy tone.

Listen to “London Grey” Now on Major Music Streaming Platforms!

 

Recording Artist, Axel MansoorAbout Axel Mansoor
Emmy-nominated singer/songwriter Axel Mansoor has lived in five countries across four continents but currently calls Los Angeles home. His music features themes of transformation, self-love, and self-compassion, as well as an underlying message that one need not rely on others to feel validated.

Growing up in an Orthodox Jewish community, combined with Mansoor’s diverse heritage, the musician has crafted a unique sound that showcases his colorful background. Despite his music sonically bursting with feel-good energy, the theme sparks a much deeper meaning, portraying the hardships of life, acknowledging the struggles and maintaining a glimmer of hope.

As a kid I had a really, really tough time and it was basically drilled into me that I was never enough. I spent most of my life hating myself, wishing I was someone else, and wishing I was different. I make the music I do because I want to give people all over the world the unconditional love and compassion I never got.  – Axel Mansoor

Leading single ‘Paradise’ emphasizes the importance of looking up and being present. The uplifting track portrays how we all spend too much time chasing happiness and success without realizing it’s right in front of you. Mansoor has recently found a surge of creative energy and tranquility through meditation and mindfulness. This daily practice has impacted his life in so many positive ways and ‘Paradise’ is the perfect reminder to stay present. Featuring sun-soaked melodies, silky vocals and funky electronic soundscapes, the summer anthem is reminiscent of Rex Orange County,

Mansoor has seen success with his previous single “Wasted My Love” reaching #5 on Spotify’s US Viral 50 chart, receiving radio play from KCRW and garnering praise from several influential music blogs. “Talk To Me” was accompanied by an innovative vertical music video premiered by BuzzFeed on Snapchat to over 7 million viewers. Most notably, Mansoor was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award in the category of ‘Best Original Song in a Drama’ for his work on ABC’s General Hospital.

Song by song, the LA-based artist is showing listeners that it’s okay to make genuine and emotion-driven music without having to slap a label on it.

Lust Language | “Wyd?” by Spencer Jordan

Nashville-based pop singer/songwriter Spencer Jordan recently released his newest single “Wyd?”

With relatable lyrics like you got into my head, under my skin, and made me lose it, you hit me up again like ‘how you been,’ but I ain’t stupid, “Wyd?” is sure to resonate with listeners.Wyd? by Spencer Jordan

“The idea of a booty call isn’t exactly uncharted territory as far as songwriting goes,” Spencer explains. “But, I think so much has changed in dating, especially with people my age, that there are so many new and interesting ways to broach the subjects of feeling used, confused, or unappreciated by someone who you’ve caught feelings for. The ‘Wyd?’ or ‘U up?’ text has almost become a parody of itself for my generation. It is heavily associated with the rise in dating apps, and there’s just so much to play with lyrically there which is what drew me to the idea in the first place.”

Listen to “Wyd?” Now!

About Spencer Jordan
Spencer Jordan is a pop Singer/Songwriter from Jupiter, Florida. After graduating from the University of Florida in 2016, he began his songwriting and artist career in Nashville, Tennessee.

Music News: Giving It Up to the Charts | “Give It 2 U” by J. Brown

Chart-topping R&B Crooner J. Brown’s New Single “Give It 2 U” Already Topping The Charts as The #25 R&B Song In The Country

Give It 2 U by J. Brown

New single, “Give It 2 U” from chart-topping R&B crooner, J. Brown. “Give It 2 U” has already charted as the #25 R&B song in the county this week. “I am excited about giving listeners another glimpse of who J. Brown is as an artist. The familiarity of the track will take true R&B lovers down memory and I look forward to folks just grooving to the song”, mentions J. Brown. The mid-tempo summer-friendly song was written by Jayson Echo and Charles Farrar and produced by Quaid.

“Give 2 U” is Available Now on Spotify, iTunes, & Amazon!

J. Brown is currently on a national promotional tour in support of the new single. The song is already creating traction at national radio with heavy spins at SiriusXM and Music Choice among others. J. Brown recently graced the June 2019 cover of Lavish Life Magazine (on newsstands now).

Earlier this year, J. Brown scored his first Top 10 Billboard single, with the smash, “Sunrise Sunset”. The song remained on the Top 10 Billboard charts for 5 consecutive weeks.**

J. Brown - BRASH! Magazine BlogAbout J. Brown
Figuratively set to the rhythmic pace of its infamous, steady-grinding automobile factories, while its streets are legendary and well-known the world over for the hyper-creative and musically fertile atmosphere that gave birth to Motown, Detroit continues to be a music capital of feel-good, contemporary music that ultimately proves timeless. The list of iconic names that have catapulted and captivated from the Motor City seems infinite…more than a few simply known by one name. Typifying the old saying “something in the water,” singer/songwriter J. BROWN – though generationally removed from the Gordy company’s then revolutionary melding of contemporary R&B and pop – has paid his dues and persevered in bringing those time proven musical values into the new music era with his forthcoming, long-in-the-making solo debut set. With music firmly in his blood and armed with tunnel-vision focus on following his passion of making music from the heart, J. BROWN delivers a dose of straight-up R&B – some with subtle pop and 90s throwback influences – to a music generation largely devoid of truly soulful and impassioned music.

Netherlands Singer/Songwriter, Julia ZahraAbout Julia Zahra
Julia Zahra was born in 1995 in Indianapolis, US as Julia van der Toorn, and was raised in The Netherlands.

In 2013 she auditioned in the fourth season of The Voice of Holland with an accoustic guitar version of Britney Spears’ ‘Oops I Did It Again’ (over 6 million streams on Spotify). From that first moment on she was one of the favourites and gained popularity, and won the competition at only 18 years old – the youngest winner thus far. After that she released her debut album.

A year later Julia participated in ‘The Best Singers of The Netherlands’, a Dutch TV competition in which artists perform cover versions of each other’s songs, and won this show as well. In one episode she sang ‘Just an Illusion’ which ended up high in the Dutch iTunes charts in 2015. More than a year later the song was picked up in Fiji, where it still is a top ten song, and eventually all around The Pacific, Australia and New Zealand. You can hear the song also on the radio in L.A., San Francisco and even Canada, and by now it has over 4 million streams on Spotify. Zahra toured around the Pacific for 2 months, amongst other venues playing the Vodafone Arena in Fiji and a sold out Club Royals in Auckland, NZ.

In January 2018 Julia released her EP Something New, which is a raw and acoustic interpretation of her songs. Currently she is performing live in The Netherlands with her almost sold out The Remedy Tour, and is ready to overwhelm everybody with a new sound and a lot of new tunes.
